University Preparedness & Career Readiness
Support our Fellows in helping their students bring to life the vision they hold for their future.
University Preparedness and Access through Computer Literacy, English Literacy, and Career Counselling
Ansa Gul, Fareeha Iqbal
In Saidpur community, more than 70% of girls do not get enrolled in college and discontinue their studies right after completing their secondary education. After collecting data through surveys and interviews, Fareeha and Ansa identified that lack of awareness regarding career paths, scholarship funds, use of technology and reliable transportation were some common issues that held their students back. A gap in literacy skills was also identified because of which students lack confidence and hence motivation to pursue higher education.
“Raasta'' is a disciplined approach towards gathering resources and information for the students, equipping them with necessary skills to build up their confidence and to help them map their upcoming journeys so that they can take a focused path towards their vision. It includes Computer Training, English Literacy Workshops, paired with Dream Mapping activities that will help students set their goals for the future. Along with these workshops, students will be provided resources in a booklet that they can refer to for possible career options and scholarships.
Your kind contributions will help Fareeha and Ansa’s students defeat all the disablers in their way, and help them achieve their dreams of higher education.

Pathway Towards Future Academic Readiness and Awareness
Faizan Taj, Masghood Ali
Faizan and Masghood’s students dream big and hold many aspirations but what holds them back from materializing their vision for the future is lack of awareness regarding different career paths. Little to no career guidance in school or at home impinges on the motivation levels of the students to pursue higher education.
Envisioning a successful future for their students, Faizan and Masghood have designed an initiative called ‘CareerDoor’. It focuses on building a career counseling curriculum, followed by a series of teachers and parents training regarding their role in ensuring higher education for students and an arrangement of university visits for the students. They also aim to develop a CareerDoor Guidance Booklet to help students become more knowledgeable about scholarships and university admission processes. CareerDoor will help the students set a vision for their future by knowing their strengths through aptitude tests.
Your generous contributions will support, enable, and help shape a better future for Faizan and Masghood’s students!

Enlightening the pathway toward various career opportunities through sessions and workshops
Farah Ilyas, Rida Nayyab
Rida and Farah’s students wish to pursue higher education and their parenst aspire the same for their girls however, the transition rate from secondary to higher education is critically low. Over 90% of students make it to college after finishing school, but many brilliant students didn’t nurture their dreams as they were unable to attend universities due to lack of awareness about career paths, financial constraints and transport issues.
To bring these dreams to reality, Farah and Rida have designed their project ‘AAGAHI” to provide exposure of various universities, different careers, and scholarship opportunities via career counseling, university visits, sessions and workshops, that will spread awareness amongst students and their parents for the feasible options available to undertake higher education. Your contribution to this cause will enable Rida and Farah to enlighten the lives of their students.

Career Counseling & Literacy Building through an E-learning Platform
Usman Khwar, Nouman Alam
Usman and Nouman’s students, though immensely talented and creative, do not have the guidance needed to build career readiness and associated with it, lack literacy skills necessary for advancing to higher education. They do not have access to resources needed for career prep which leads to low scores in verbal and quantitative portions of University entrance exams and scholarship tests.
To ensure long term support and implementation of a scalable solution, they have pioneered a project to develop an Android application. Through the application, Usman and Nouman wish to provide support to students in the following areas: Career prep, English literacy building and Numeracy development. Students will use the application for career counseling, achieved via aptitude tests & provision of details regarding different career paths. English and Numeral literacy will be built through different tools, ensuring a high success rate of their students in entrance test exams.
With the application being free to use and having offline access, this platform can be scaled to be used by students all over Pakistan. Your kind contributions will guide, enable and help build a better future for hundreds of students.
